What is swept under the carpet in Germany and in European society? God’s Entertainment take this question as a starting point for their artistic research and the installation that results from it. In the first week of the festival, guided by the Bosnian weaver and artist Ifeta and with help from residents of Munich, they weave a carpet (Ćilim). Its yarns, and its structure of warp and weft yarns converging in a complex textile, stands symbolically for social amalgamations and people on the move in all kinds of ways: from tourists to migrants, refugees and asylum seekers, through to guest workers. Visitors can go and see the weavers at work in the Lothringer Florida. In the second phase of the project, the carpet will be exhibited, and underneath it there will be an installation consisting of visual and video material. In order to visit this multimedia collage, the viewers must themselves go to a place where all the forgotten and repressed things have collected: under the carpet.
God's Entertainment were already shown at SPIELART in 2009 with PASSANTENBESCHIMPFUNG, 2011 with TRANS-EUROPA-BOLLYWOOD and 2015 with CHAUVINISM SCANNER.
